While there is consensus that the COVID-19 pandemic has negatively impacted delivery of routine clinical care and has put enormous stress on the financial status of healthcare systems, definitive data on the effect of this ongoing pandemic on individual subspecialties, such as interventional endoscopy, are lacking. In an audit, we projected a 7.3% decline in the annual procedural volume, 15.2% increase in anticipated procedure-related reimbursement and 22.6% loss in downstream revenue to the hea...

Objective While single-use and detachable-tip duodenoscopes have been recently developed to overcome risks of infection transmission, there are no reliable tools to objectively assess their technical performance. We evaluated the reliability and validity of a newly developed tool to assess the technical performance of reusable duodenoscopes. Methods An assessment tool was developed to measure duodenoscope performance based on three distinct criteria: maneuverability, mechanical/imaging character...

Objective Single-use duodenoscopes have been recently developed to eliminate risk of infection transmission from contaminated reusable duodenoscopes. We compared performances of single-use and reusable duodenoscopes in patients undergoing endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP). Design Patients with native papilla requiring ERCP were randomised to single-use or reusable duodenoscope. Primary outcome was comparing number of attempts to achieve successful cannulation of desired duct....

ABSTRACT Background and Aims Consensus regarding an optimal algorithm for endoscopic treatment of papillary adenomas has not been established. We aimed to assess the existing degree of consensus among international experts and develop further concordance by means of a Delphi process. Methods A total of 52 international experts in the field of endoscopic papillectomy were invited to participate. Data were collected between August and December 2019 using an online survey platform. A total of 3 rou...

ABSTRACT Background & Aims Given the lack of procedure standardization, findings vary from analyses of pancreatic tissues collected by endoscopic ultrasound-guided fine-needle biopsy. It is not clear which needle and technique yield best specimen for analysis. We compared the specimen quality and accuracy of diagnoses made from samples collected by fine-needle biopsy needles using different collection techniques. Methods Patients found to have pancreatic masses during imaging (n=129) were random...

Although rare in occurrence, adverse events such as delayed bleeding and buried stent syndrome have been reported after lumen-apposing metal stents (LAMS) placement in patients undergoing endoscopic ultrasound (EUS)-guided drainage of pancreatic fluid collections (PFCs). In a prospective study, we observed delayed adverse events in 6.4% of 188 patients which occurred when the PFCs were 7 cm or smaller in size and the removal of LAMS was delayed beyond 4 weeks. LAMS are being increasingly preferr...

BACKGROUND AND AIM Despite the increasing number of procedures being performed, there is no consensus on the optimal approach to performing direct endoscopic necrosectomy (DEN), which is a labor-intensive, nonstandardized intervention. We prospectively validated the usefulness of a predefined, structured, stepwise approach to DEN with the objective of improving procedural efficiency and resource use. MATERIALS AND METHODS A prospective study of patients with necrotizing pancreatitis who after en...
